Haynes Bonner Johnson

Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

Life has happened.I wrote obits at the Star with Haynes in charge now alas I am reading them.

I will never forget the journalism seminar at Princeton I was privileged to take with Haynes. It was exciting, thought-provoking, challenging, and very fulfilling. Too few times afterwards, I reached out to thank him for that experience or for producing another outstanding book. Each time, he was insightful and gracious. I am so glad that I got to know him.

sincere condolence to the Johnson family,May God be with you at this time.Blessed are the mericiful,since they will be shown mercy."matt.5:7...dd

A warrior gone home to rest.
Thank God for the life of his great human being and the work he has done for humanity in obedience to God the Father.
The difference he made will never be forgotten. Treasure your memories of the one you loved who also still loves you.He is in heaven waiting for you.

We thank God for great men as Haynes Johnson and know our God used him to be a blessing to others. He was tireless and unselfish and now he is at rest. May our God comfort your hearts and may you recall the happy times spent with such a great man who loved you. We are also life time Civil Rights workers.

I am so sorry for your great loss. My thoughts and prayers are with this wonderful family. I shall miss Mr. Johnson and his thoughtfulness.

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
